If it ain't on p-vine it ain't p-funk mini CD

Does anyone have this? Seems pretty hard to find. It would be great if you could share track 2, quantum leap. The other 2 are out there on YouTube.

Had no idea these existed until I read findagroov’s book.

Yeah that one is pretty hard to come by. Don’t have it, but here’s the cover!

I wonder if @Findagroov has it. To review these songs, he must either own the disc or the songs, I reckon.

Interesting but…Most of the the P Vine releases from back then were of dubious quality usually cut from vinyl. I am curious though!?!

What are some examples of albums that were released by p-vine? I am not 100 sure that I have any, but I am betting I have at least a few. But I don’t recall anything I’ve purchased having noticeably bad sound quality.

The version of terrestrial touch I found on YouTube was brutal quality, but I don’t know whether it came from the CD or not. It also says it’s a demo version . Feona funk sounded fine though

It’s confusing early nineties they did Arista releases, Osiris, Bernie and maybe the Parlet invasion of booty snatchers (fake poly gram?) all cut from vinyl only the recent cd issues being cut from Tape… They also did civil attack and Don Blackmon from vinyl… my memory ain’t what it used to be???

That’s a rarity alright. Someone dubbed it for me on a cassette some years ago. It will pop up on ebay every blue moon.

Yeah, you know how you know when something’s rare nowadays?

  • it’s rare if there’s not a single copy for sale on discogs
  • it’s rarer if there’s not even a sales history on discogs
  • it’s rarest if it’s not even on discogs because it’s never been in the hands of someone who cares to add to discogs.

This would be in the third category.

Hmmm, this is getting me to wondering. How rare do you suppose the Police Doggy EP is? I’ve got one over here and am tempted to put it out there and see what happens.

Well I just went over there. It ain’t as in demand as I thought. I think I will sit on it.

Yeah, I just got it a month ago. It’s rare enough that I had to pay double what I am used to paying for a CD, but was easy enough to find.

Dope Dog, on the other hand, I had to buy the only one on the whole internet, for $60. It said it hadn’t sold in two years prior. Immediately after, two copies showed up, for much less than $60.

I have a copy of Quazar by Quazar on cd from P-Vine/Arista and the quality seems fine to me

Yeah, they’ve done a lot of releases. Haven’t noticed any bad sound quality either, but on the other hand I don’t have so many releases from P-Vine.

Cut from vinyl… unlike the more recent one from tape on different label that is cut from tape… the last few years saw a couple of Brides albums, the Bernie Woo And Quazar released for the first time from tape on cd after all these years, plus a Fuzzy cd with a couple of 12” mixes also previously unavailable!

It has now been added to discogs :slightly_smiling_face:

Good stuff!

This officialandbootz guy has been turning up in a lot of places lately, in releases that I’ve been adding, updating and checking. I think we have ourselves a P-Funk connoisseur.

Every day I get a couple of messages saying there have been changes affecting items in my collection, and when I check, it’s this same guy, usually adding complete pics, usually to a secondary or tertiary p-funk item (like brides, parlet or fuzzy). This guy has it all and he likes to contribute. I’m gonna tell him about these forums.

Don’t know if this warrants its own topic so I guess I’ll just drop it here.

This may be a fairly insignificant piece of information, but I just stumbled upon an upload of the extended Quazar album officially uploaded to youtube just last October. Funny, cuz I had just uploaded my own rip of the non-expanded version last March, after seeing that there wasn’t a particularly high quality or comprehensive upload of the album on youtube.

Who knows, maybe we’ll see some more rare P uploaded in the future? I guess we’ll just have to see… Anyways, here’s the link to the playlist if you’re interested to hear it:

Yeah, the older 90’s Quazar cd issue on P-Vine is cut from vinyl and the newer issue is mastered from tape, there is more than one P-Vine label which confuses me sometimes.
